Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

The movies! The dresses! The makeup! The hair! Oh my god, isn't awards season over already!? The Oscars is the grand finale of award shows and I can't even imagine how sick everyone is of putting on Spanx and walking in 6 inch heels. It must be very difficult to put on couture Dior and have your makeup done, so thank you, ladies of Hollywood, for rallying on last night!

Here are some of my favorite beauty looks from the Oscars, and how to get the key aspects of those looks.

Choosing a colorful eye makeup is super risky for an event like the Oscars; Amanda Seyfried's lavender shadow is an example of how it works! It looks especially beautiful with her bright blue eyes. The trick to wearing colorful eye makeup is to keep everything else on the face light. In other words, don't do this with red lips, you'll look like a clown! To get Amanda's shadow try NARS 413 BLKR Duo.

1. Use a light shimmery shade over the entire lid.
2. Apply the dark shade in NARS 413BLKR Duo lightly along the lash line of the outer corners of the eyes.
3. Apply the light purple shade into the crease and into dramatic wings.
4. Apply the light purple shade lightly under the bottom lashes as a drop shadow.

Certain guys, let's just say, guys like Jennifer Aniston's new squeeze, Justin Theroux (from Parks And Recreation or American Psycho) should always have one eyebrow slightly raised. It accentuates the slight shadiness of an over-pronounced widow's peak that, when complemented by a stark black-and-white ensemble, looks positively menacing. In a good way. A super-hot, dangerous way.

While Theroux had been getting a lot of flack for ending his 14-year relationship to date the Hollywood A-lister, our biggest source of bewilderment and sadfacedness had been attributable to his sporting scraggly facial hair of rando-homeless-dude proportions, denying us the pleasure of ogling both his fine features and a good-looking beard.

Things done changed.

It's OFFICIAL! It's Movie Awards season again! The 2011 MTV Movie Awards site was just launched yesterday for your viewing (and VOTING) enjoyment. We'll be covering the MMAs starting now until the big day, Sunday, June 5 (mark your calendars, y'all!), when Jason Sudeikis takes the stage as your host for the evening, so there are NO EXCUSES for missing it! Our 2011 MTV Movie Awards coverage starts up with a look back at all the most stylish moments of this year's Best Female Performance nominees: Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Jennifer Aniston, Kristen Stewart, and Natalie Potman. Vote for your leading ladies and check snippets of each performance here!


Emma Stone at the "Easy A" premiere in Toronto on Sept. 11, 2010, at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, on Jan. 16, 2011, and at the Conde Nast Traveler Annual Hot List party in West Hollywood, California, on April 11, 2011.

Nominated For: Best Female Performance - Easy A
Character Name: Olive
Memorable Style Moments: Emma Stone has been an undeniable fashion force of late. She's been experimenting with her hair, running the options from deep scarlet to stark blonde, and rocking insanely vibrant lipstick like it's NBD. Needless to say, we've been loving it. We love her age-appropriate ice-blue cocktail-length dress with floral overlay and monster shoulder pouf where an updo and minimal jewelry don't jockey for attention, but it was at this year's Golden Globes when she swanned in an impossibly sleek apricot Calvin Klein in which she truly knocked us dead. The tousled milk-white hair, fuchsia lipstick and cornflower blue ensemble with the prettily demure accessories was a definite close second.


Emma Watson at the world premiere of "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows" in London on Nov. 11, 2010, visiting "Late Show With David Letterman" in New York City on Nov. 15, 2010, and attending the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Ball in New York City on May 3, 2010.

Nominated For: Best Female Performance - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Character Name: Hermione Granger
Memorable Style Moments: Emma Watson gets all the points in the world for having the most-gorgeous features that allow her to rock a pixie while appearing totally chic and feminine. A style muse and the face of houses like Burberry, Watson wowed crowds at the London premiere of the latest Potter flick in a Rafael Lopez feathered frock wherein she again defied logic and expectation by proving that petite ladies can appear as stunningly leggy as 6-foot-tall models. Of course, Watson looks just as breezily stylish in jeans and an oversize sweater + shirt combo. Especially when her studded status bag shines as hard as her impish grin, and finally, we've got blast-from-the-past Watson, in Burberry (of course) at last year's Met Gala, where we perhaps first noticed that wee little Hermione had grown the hell up in a white couture gown cut to there.


Jennifer Aniston at "Exposados" (The Bounty Hunter) photo call in Madrid, Spain on March 30, 2010, leaving the "Wanderlust" movie set in New York City on Nov. 20, 2010, and at the premiere of "Just Go With It" in New York City on Feb. 8, 2011.

Nominated For: Best Female Performance - Just Go With It
Character Name: Katherine
Memorable Style Moments: Jennifer Aniston's looked good for so long (and no, dudes, that is not at all a jab at her age reeeelax) that we often forget how awesome her perfected style science is. Her hair? Perfectly colored, perfectly coiffed, perfectly spot-on for the occasion. Whether it's a sleeveless sheath showcasing her shapely arms accessorized with a simple gold watch, or suede wedges offsetting a black shrunken leather moto jacket that fits so perfectly she looks sewn in, or a form-fitting, draped-to-death blue-black Dolce & Gabbana, Aniston always looks elegant and laid-back Hollywood done right.


Kristen Stewart at the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in Los Angeles on June 24, 2010, at the Costume Institute Gala Benefit in New York City on May 8, 2010, and at the screening Of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" in New York City on June 28, 2010.

Nominated For: Best Female Performance - The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Character Name: Bella Swan
Memorable Style Moments: Kristen Stewart's just got good genes and that youthful insouciance where she looks cool no matter where she's at or what she's wearing. Her hair, even in a braided sweep, always has the correct number of stray pieces, and regardless of what color her tresses are it never looks like it required too much effort. Whether in single-sleeved sequins and feathers from Elie Saab that created a FUHRENZY or an architectural bodice with see-through "illusion skirt" hemline by none other than Chanel (whoa, waaaay early on that trend, right?) or a immensely ornate appliqued, skintight mini Roland Mouret dress, K. Stew keeps us on our toes with an unexpected curveball and reveals a confidence that makes us 0.0034 percent OK-er with the fact that her boyfriend is insanely, unfairly, ridiculously gorgeous.


Natalie Portman at the 67th Venice International Film Festival in Venice on Sept. 1, 2010, at the "Black Swan" Press Conference in Toronto on Sept. 14, 2010, and at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences' second annual Governors Awards in Hollywood on Nov. 13, 2010.

Nominated For: Best Female Performance - Black Swan
Character Name: Nina Sayers
Memorable Style Moments: The thing everyone says about Natalie Portman is that she's a consummate professional, and that's hardly a surprise since when it comes to looking awesome, this chick's on her job. The whippet-thin actress would look good in jeggings and a canvas smock, but when it comes to event dresses, N. Port keeps it well played with a *golf clap*. Look at the way this scarlet Rodarte she wore to Venice moves? Flawless. And check out this contrast: Even with a somewhat shapeless, super-casual, sweater dress, the peekaboo sleeves and truncated length make it not only cute but really freaking cool. The Lanvin she wore to the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences' Governors Awards got torn by critics for the unflattering draping, but we have to say we LOVE the color and find the asymmetry wholly pleasing. In short, haters can suck it.
